ANC condemns MultiChoice for pulling plug on Russia Today

Must Read

The party joined the SA Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu), Cope, EFF, and other political parties who demanded MultiChoice to reconsider its censorship decision and immediately reinstate RT.

The ANC said on Saturday it notes the draconian decision by the European Union (EU) to impose sanctions on Russia and its entities, including global media organisations, following the escalation of hostilities between Ukraine and Russia.

The ANC said withdrawing RT from its bouquet is impacting negatively on the freedom of choice for subscribers and limiting their consumption of news on the developments in the Ukraine–Russia conflict.

“The ANC believes that this act of censorship, conducted in bad faith during Human Rights Month in SA, undermines subscribers freedom of association and negatively impacts on the need for plurality of views and media freedom which is sacrosanct and provided for in our Constitution,” said ANC national spokesperson Pule Mabe.
